DIY Moldable Ice-packs
Alright, if you are clumsy like me...or if you have a child, you will totally get it when I say that I'm always running out of ice for boo boo's. Recently I have stumbled across many sources for DIY Moldable Ice-packs. Some of the recipes were, errr...interesting. However this one works! It's cheap and you can make as many as you need at a moments notice. These moldable icepacks will not freeze rock hard like ice. They will have the texture of one of those slushy drinks which is handy!
All you need are three things:
1. Rubbing Alcohol
3. Ziplock Bags
You can make any amount that you like. It's a ratio of 1 part rubbing alcohol to 3 parts water. Stir and place into your ziplock freezer bag.
I suggest you lay your moldable ice-pack flat in the freezer. I like mine so much that the next time I make one, I'm going to add a few drops of food coloring so I can find it easily in my freezer.
